It is such a wonderful advantage to be able to print window graphics onto see-through perforated film – displaying branding or graphics, providing privacy, while at the same time allowing an interior view on the outside world. And, yet, it remains a medium that is incredibly underutilised in the Sydney signage scene.
So, in an attempt to do justice to one way vision film’s versatility, we would like to share with you a recent example of how to take advantage of it with truly impressive results.
Once again, we were fortunate to be working with a returning client. The image used was a photo taken using an iPhone of a guitar from Australia’s internationally successful band, Peking Duck.
The installation spanned 15m, across 6 windows on the Plus U building in the Sydney CBD. The use of black and white window graphics is always striking, but is particularly effective when applied to see-through perforated film.
The completed installation is one of the more awe-inspiring examples of one-way vision window graphics you will find in Sydney. We can only hope that it inspires others to take advantage of its potential, and, in the process, elevate the Sydney signage landscape.
One of the benefits of earning the trust of a client through producing consistently high quality results across numerous projects, is having the opportunity to work on the type of bold projects that we relish being contacted for.
And such was the case when Think Brick reached out to us for our 4th project with them, having previously worked on: a complicated printed frosting and printed whiteboard; a company event at the Hyatt hotel on Sydney harbour; an expanse of motivational wall decals, between windows that run the length of the office. But this 4th project would see us taking on a truly spectacular design that would transform their North Sydney workspace.
The intricate mosaic style office window decals required exhaustive planning throughout the design process. As the intent was to create a double-sided office interior, we needed to install a block-out film to ensure the graphics on the underside of the glass could not be seen. This allowed us to seamlessly feature window graphics and signage on either side of the glass.
The scale of this project becomes all the more apparent given that each small triangle is an individual window sticker, composed of a combination of computer cut window decals and digital print graphics to achieve the desired effect.
The meticulous production involved three people over three days, painstakingly aligning each individual triangle. Remarkably, our dedicated team at Sydney Signs Portal, still managed to complete the entire production and installation within a week.
We consider it a privilege to push the boundaries when it comes to window decals and office signs in Sydney. We hope you are suitably inspired to breathe life into your workspace in a similarly spectacular fashion. We await your contact today.
Gone are the days of an office whiteboard being a cumbersome, intrusive, fixed-size addition to your office. An evolution has taken place, where custom sizing, functionality and seamless inclusion are all now possible.
We love nothing more than seeing a workspace transformed in a way that takes advantage of a product’s potential. And such was the case when engineering and construction powerhouse, Bechtel, reached out to us to realise their vision of a workspace whiteboard Utopia.
Within open office spaces, meeting rooms, enclosed offices, boardrooms and storerooms – whiteboard that extended from knee height to well above head height, spanning 50 metres in length was installed. The largest single whiteboard was 7 metres in length, installed in an open office area.
To complete the aesthetic, each whiteboard will eventually be framed with aluminium strip holder.
We also installed window frosting, adding frosting strips to some of the exposed glass.
This project represents and embodies why we strive so hard to innovate within the signage industry. You will see no better example of the functionality of a workspace being maximised with custom whiteboard inclusions -at least, not until we next outdo ourselves.
And perhaps that will be with your project?
Our dedicated team at Sydney Signs Portal awaits your contact.
Never underestimate the opportunity to leave a lasting positive impression with an already-valued – or prospective – visiting client, with your choice of reception signage.
As a reception is often the first point of contact for anyone visiting your business, good people and good signage are a must. And, in our experience, custom-made acrylic signage is the go-to option in the ongoing pursuit to impress clients.

And acrylic signs come in a variety of solutions – all with their merits.
Classic acrylic panel
But your choices with acrylic signs do no end there. Acrylic comes in a range of appealing tones: clear, white, black or frosted.
And what these varied options with acrylic signage afford to you is a unique ability to truly capture the essence of your business and how it is perceived.
Throw in a price point that compares favourably with regular decal signage – along with the fact the acrylic signs can travel with you should your business relocate – and it beckons the question: what more convincing do you need?
Our experienced team at Sydney Signs Portal awaits your call.
One of the keys to business success is discovering simple solutions that allow your company to stand out from your competitors. And at the heart of being noticed is effective branding and appealing signage – a reality that our team at Sydney Signs Portal has spent years innovating and developing.
And through this process we have the pleasure of working with talented graphic designers who bring fresh ideas to the world of window stickers and shopfront signage. One such idea is adding ornate borders to your windows with decorative decals.

Or start afresh, giving your shopfront the type of transformation that not only does your business justice, but catches the eye of customers who may otherwise have passed you by. New window stickers framing the public’s view into your world just might be the makeover that takes your business to the next level.
And if you really wish to convey quality to customers – both future and present – be sure to enquire about our mirror gold decal option. This elegant window decal will add prestige to your business, and elevates the humble glass decal to a crowd-stopping feature.
We look forward to the opportunity of transforming your windows AND business in the near future.
Here at Sydney Signs Portal, we pay more than lip service to the ethical values we aim to run our business by. This means occasionally declining work – usually on the grounds that we are not comfortable with supporting businesses involving animal exploitation.
So you can imagine the excitement we felt when approached by Vegan NSW to assist with the signage needed for their monthly Sydney Vegan Market.
A range of custom made signs, logos, banners, digital prints and more were required for this major event. Because we were working for a charitable organisation, and a lifestyle our entire team is passionate about, we were happy to donate time and resources, ensuring costs were kept to a minimum – not a simple task when small business like ours takes on such a large-scale project.
The market is held on the 3rd Sunday of every month at the grounds of The Sydney Portugal Community Club in Marrickville. The signage we created for it serves functionally, while you’re surrounded by great food and so much more at this truly spectacular community event.
One of the great privileges we have here at Sydney Signs Portal is participating in the growth and development of emerging interior design trends in contemporary offices.
One such office interior design trend is the use of geometric patterns for window frosting. Among which, the hexagon pattern is proving to be a particularly special approach as a window frosting solution.
Complimenting a variety of interior designs, hexagonal window frosting is both stylish and functional. Its geometry offers a wonderful business-like aesthetic, while providing the office privacy you require.
One of the great features of hexagonal window frosting is that it offers a wide range of variations. We can print your company colours on all of the hexagons – or just a selection – creating a striking effect of scattered elements. We also have the option of producing hexagons that are larger or smaller – depending on your preference – as well as choosing to fill or leave them empty. Working together, we are only limited by our collective imagination.
The experience our team at Sydney Signs Portal has with designing and installing window frosting over the years, presents a wonderful opportunity for your business to benefit greatly without the need for the type of costly investment normally associated with the interior design of your office.
Contact us today, and you too can discover why an increasing number of our clients are delighted with the style and appeal offered by hexagonal window frosting.
There are few organisations out there that command respect on the international stage in the way that UNICEF does. Since 1946, UNICEF has championed the rights of children, ensuring that the most vulnerable humans in conflict zones and disaster-stricken regions receive the food, water, medical assistance and education they need. This tireless work is in pursuit of a world where no child is denied basic needs, joy and safety.
So it was quite an honour for Sydney Signs Portal to be contacted by Unicef to complete a major installation at their Sydney CBD office.
After receiving their brief and inspecting the site, it became quickly apparent that the work they were wanting was well beyond their budget. Normally we would advise a client on ways to modify their ideas to accommodate their budget – but this IS UNICEF. As part of our ethical commitment, it felt right to offer this esteemed client a substantial discount, and deliver finished results that would exceed their expectations.
Sensing an opportunity to deliver more than the requested office world map wall graphics – and in keeping with our reputation as market-leading innovators – we were excited to debut our very own invention: digital print on whiteboard. The result being a 4.2m x 2.3m world map wall mural with office whiteboard functionality. Using erasable whiteboard markers, this office wall map can be used to plot points, make notes and strategically plan any international operations.
We also installed a more traditional vinyl office whiteboard in one of the UNICEF offices. As whiteboard vinyl on white wall tends to blend, making the borders indistinguishable, it is not uncommon for people to accidentally write on walls. We resolved this issue by adding a custom black boarder to the office whiteboard. This also achieved a more aesthetically pleasing finish, resembling an old-school whiteboard.
While it may be on point or a trend for businesses to assign offices the names of prominent world cities – this carries far more meaning when UNICEF decides to do it. As is custom for room name glass stickers, we used vinyl glass decals. The classic font in black maintains the formal appearance and is timeless.
For the two meeting rooms requiring privacy, we installed classic simple window frosting.
When you are working with an organisation that gives so much to those who have so little, you feel compelled to give as much as you can. Beyond our time and materials; our expertise; our attention to detail; our ability to innovate – it was our an honour to give generously to UNICEF. The spectacular results only further confirm our commitment to excellence.
